520 HP, 530 ft.-lbs. of torque...that's 70 more HP and ft.-lbs. than the standard turbo and 20 more HP and 15 more ft.-lbs. of torque than the Turbo with the powerkit. All that power gets you to 60 0.4 seconds quicker (4.8 instead of 5.2) and gets you 3 MPH at the top end (168 MPH versus 165). Considering its $111,600 MSRP ($21,400 more than the standard Turbo), that's not particularly impressive.

But as is Porsche's way with their Turbo S models, you get more than just a bump in power...the Turbo S gets the 20" SportDesign wheel standard (a pricey option on the Turbo) as well as a full leather interior with all those little expensive porsche interior options. Also standard is the Panoramic roof, which is, again, a pricey option on the Turbo.

By Porsche's economics, then, it's a sensible buy. But Porsche's economics are ridiculous, just like this car. It will, however, no doubt be sold to those for whom price is no object and they want the best Cayenne money can buy.
